With golden beaches and lovely views of the Caribbean, it’s no wonder that Belize is widely considered to be one of the most romantic places on Earth. Lush gardens, pristine rainforests, and endless expanses of white sands make the perfect backdrop for a dream beach wedding.
On the map, Belize is located just a few miles south of Mexico, but with all major airlines offering non-stop service to Belize from the United States, Belize is just a short flight away. From the first moment when you step off the plane, you’ll realize that you are in an exotic paradise brimming with plants, animals, and unbelievably beautiful landscapes.
The Placencia Peninsula is located in southeastern Belize where the Caribbean Sea meets 16 miles of picture-postcard beaches. Placencia is one of the top spots for hosting a dream wedding, perfectly placed just a short distance from the tropical islands and coral atolls of the Belize Barrier Reef, a UNESCO World Heritage Site rated by the Discovery Channel as one of the most beautiful locations on the planet.
